Easy Moist Banana Bread Recipe – Make perfectly moist yummy banana bread, with this easy to follow recipe. A true family favorite!
Ahhhhhhh who doesn’t love banana bread? Banana bread seems to be loved world wide, but Caribbean people seem to have a special kind of love for banana bread. There seems to be a million ways to make banana bread in the Caribbean, with some people even adding rum to their banana bread. Yes, Rum. Mmmmmm….
We won’t be adding any rum to this recipe today, just simple, classic, moist banana bread. With the option to add walnuts. I personally prefer the nuts left out the banana bread. Not because it taste bad, but because I don’t like the texture of the nuts on my bread. I want soft moist bread without the crunch. Just a preference for me, but if you enjoy banana nut bread then go ahead & add in those nuts. Either way this recipe leaves you with deliciously scrumptious banana bread, plus an AMAZING smelling house!

Easy Moist Banana Bread Recipe – Make perfectly moist yummy banana bread, with this easy to follow recipe. A true family favorite & best homemade banana walnut bread!
- 1 and 1/2 cup flour (all purpose flour)
- 3 tsp. baking powder
- 1/2 tsp. baking soda
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 2 pinches of cinnamon
- 1 cup very ripe mashed bananas (3 ripe bananas)
- 1/4 cup milk
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup butter
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- Optional: 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees, and lightly grease a 9x5 loaf pan with butter.
- In a medium size bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, & cinnamon. Set aside.
- In a separate bowl, mash bananas and milk together until smooth, then set aside. (I use a hand mixer).
- In a large mixing bowl, cream together sugar & butter until smooth. Beat in eggs and vanilla until combined.
- Alternate the flour mixture & banana mixture into the large mixing bowl. Adding first some of the flour mixture, blending, then adding some of the banana mixture & blending. Repeat until finished. Always beginning and ending with flour until well incorporated. Mix in walnuts, (if using).
- Evenly pour mixture into loaf pan, and bake for 55 minutes.
- When finished let bread cool for at least 5-10 minutes, before taking it out the loaf pan and placing on a cooling rack. Let bread fully cool off before wrapping up to keep fresh.
- Banana bread taste best the second day.
- (If you don't like any added crunch to your bread, skip the walnuts.)
